The 13th Valdai paper “Marxism in the Post-Globalization Era” explores the trends in the development of political ideology at the turn of XX-XXI centuries and reasons of mainstream shifting to the right: from ideas of progressive liberalism to the principles of modern neoliberalism.

The author assesses the development of the crisis among the left, influence of the “anti-globalization” movement on the neo-liberal system, the class structure of the changing society, welfare state social guarantees, populist political movements, Russia’s ideological role in BRICS, social conflict and global confrontation, the need for change and a new development strategy.

The author of the paper is Boris Kagarlitsky, sociologist and Ph.D. in political sciences, Director of the Institute of Globalization and Social Movements (IGSO) in Moscow.
